Be a Citizen Supporter: Right to Vote Amendment

The Supreme Court crippled voting rights last week by striking down a key part of the landmark Voting Rights Act.

Rep. Keith Ellison and Rep. Mark Pocan have introduced a Constitutional amendment that reverses the Court decision and invalidates voter suppression laws. Sign on as a citizen co-sponsor.


SECTION 1: Every citizen of the United States, who is of legal voting age, shall have the fundamental right to vote in any public election held in the jurisdiction in which the citizen resides.

SECTION 2: Congress shall have the power to enforce and implement this article by appropriate legislation.

Rep. Ellison and Rep. Pocan will use your citizen signatures to lobby members of Congress - we'll keep them updated on how many people have signed. We'll also inform the media that the public is fighting back. Add your name.
